that is the other day president obama was campaigning down in virginia. he made that very remark. he was saying i know i have supporters out there in the audience but i wanted to talk to some of the folks who are watching on tv who may not be my supporters. mitt romney in some of his campaign remarks have said the same thing. so the mention are sounding a little more independent or centrist than they did in the past. >> gregg: what is curious and this is borne out by some of the polls, roughly 60% of the likely voters think the president's economic policies -- there it is -- have hurt the economy or made no difference at all. in other words, you have to add the bottom 38 plus 21. take a look at the other numbers. when asked if policies need changing, a stunning 73% said yes. how is it that an incumbent leads when voters are demanding change? >> that is the very big question of this election. mitt romney has tried to run as a change agent, but what the obama campaign has done very well is attack him in critical swing states that both candidates wanted to win. he has done a good job of disqualifyin

that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the american people the truth. not only tell people oho they may or may not vote for but now telling people what truth they may know and what truth they may not know. >> what is the truth? look, we have covered this story responsibly here on the factor, all right? >> you have. >> but i only take it up to where the facts lie. and that's why i gave the time line. and the other thing is unfortunately the folks don't care about this story. they don't. the massive amount of people in america. not people who watch cable news and listen to talk radio but just the folks
for the fracking industry which president obama wants to shut down. ohio is not going to vote to give up its jobs by turning them over to the epa. if rob portman is a member of the ticket, that will solidify the ohio look, but i don't even think it's necessary. a very solid yes vote. the hardest of those states, virginia. virginia is hard to predict. the home of a very good senate campaign by george allen against a very good democrat, tim kane. both are former governors. there is a large military and reservists vote in virginia. that vote is sponsoring decidedly against president obama because he is definitely against the military, cutting what ought to be a 313 ship navy below 200 navy ships. cutting 20,000 marines and 8,000 army and another 20,000 sailors and airmen from the rolls. he has canceled the f-22 and numerous other weapon systems. he is messing around with military pay, benefits, retirement, and that should put mitt romney over the top in virginia, but it is a close state because of the facts. the least recession impacted state in the union is virginia. the reason the viejo is the lea
. and the reason, of course, that the obama campaign is working so hard to tamp down expectations, norah and charlie, is that they like the trajectory of the race right now. they don't want to do anything to change it. >> no doubt. thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate because any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say, but coming from you, in the past, have threatened extinction for north korea and sang songs about bombing iran. i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary.

, at least, or a independent nation for governor romney and barack obama, it comes down to this. can you make the sale to these people? they are not going to vote for you unless you can close the sale and tell them something that makes them believe it you can fix the system they think is broken. megyn: so comes down to the critical independent voter. they can make the critical difference one way or the other. yet, we see this compilation of independent votes put together that shows an average of all the polling and independence, take a look -- it's the linchpin of the election. where it is now going. perfectly tied. [laughter] i mean, thanks a lot, independents. >> well, let's face it. if you think the system is broken and you say that you're not going to participate in that anymore, you are going to wait and wait it out, and see what's going on. the good news for mitt romney is that you look at those polls and see that on individual state polls and as it goes for independence. mitt romney still enjoys an advantage in several key places among independents, and that has to be encouraging for h
to america. president obama and the campaign has won the summer. never behind in the polls, had a better convention, no question about it. and in the post convention, it's only gotten worse. now we're down to the debates in denver on wednesday night. the first one is on domestic policy. there are some republicans who are putting their credibility on the line, going out on the talking heads saying that mitt romney, after all of these months of missteps and not being sure of where he is on the issues, he's just going to turn it all around and, by the way, they can't explain the math on how they are going to turn it around. get your cell phones out. tonight's question. do you trust mitt romney's and paul ryan's math? text a for yes or b for no. you can go to our blog and leave a comment. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me is howard fineman, nbc news political analyst. great to have you with us tonight. it's really been an all over the map strategy, almost like a dart board mentality. let's see where it lands today. can paul ryan get away with refusing to give detai
president obama's record on the economy. that's what they should have down. the latest "washington post" poll shows for the first time, mitt romney is slightly better regarded on the question of who will do better leading the economy over the next four years than the president? that's through no good offices of mitt romney on his own. that's in spite of what mitt romney has done. >> howard, we have heard so much about the disgruntled folks within the romney/ryan camp. the way it's unfolding in the polls is not good. there's a report that says that romney is beginning to lose donors who were shifting their money to house and senate races. what's going on here? is this starting to take it its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent
according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to
that president obama has let down our guard. the events in libya were tragic. the responsibility for guarding our embassies and consulates overseas -- we don't have american military protecting our embassies. it is the host country that provides perimeter security rapping out diplomatic establishments. we provide security for foreign embassies in washington, d.c. and consulates in new york city to it could lead us down? in cairo, it was the egyptian government that did not have enough security around pmc, and that is why the crowds went over the walls and a trip down the american flag and burned it and put up the black flag of resistance. in libya, it was the libyan security forces that led us down in been gauzy when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it is appropriate to blame the white house or the state department for this. president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt after our embassy was attacked and basically said, "you have got to do a better job" -- my paraphrasing of what i've read about this from the newspapers -- "you have got to do a better job of protecting
to president obama and she laid down what she thinks is the red line for nuclear weapons in iran. listen to what she said. >> i think we have laid out a red line. that is, iran cannot actually get a weapon, and we've had extensive, intensive talks with the israelis. there's no light between us on the intelligence picture. no light between us on the policy objective and we've worked very closely in a number of areas on diplomacy. >> the red line did -- that's the gray line. not a red line. what kind of weapon? how enriched? at what point? is the red line three months before they get the weapon, but when they have the capability to put the weapon together in two days? these are enormously technical questions. i don't expect her to lay out the red line. i'm not criticizing her. what i expect from my president, republican or democratic president, sit down with the leader of the country most affected by this. probably our greatest ally over the last 30 or 40 years. i don't care if you like netanyahu or you don't. i don't care if you're a president who can talk to people or can't, as bob woodw
this president down a notch. so in all likelihood my suspicion is you'll see president obama playing defense first, and mitt romney sort of going after him and trying to take a few chunks outof the armor. >> a breaking news matter out of pennsylvania you've been covering this, this judge that ruled the state can't enforce the new vote are i.d. law in the upcoming election. who does it impact, what does it mean? >> we're talking about probably 90,000 some say maybe 100,000, even more according to some accounts of people who don't have the type of i.d. required under this new law in the state of pennsylvania, the judge after an appeals court ruled had to essentially put in an injunction that injunction says we're not going to enforce this vote are i.d. law through november. nonetheless, he also left it open for people at the polls to ask for i.d. of people who come to vote. it's just that the law is not going to be enforced. there's a question rightow that we're still trying network out as to whether they will have to fill out provisional ballots or just vote regularly even if they don't have
-driven. it would be different if barack obama were down by five points. guest: i did not think we do a good job of getting into the middle of the country and talking to those folks. you're sitting in a studio. a poll comes across and now you have something that's right in front of you that you can talk about. because of budget cuts, you are not seeing the expense -- people are not spending the money to get people talking to people. guest: there are a relative handful of people that still go knocking on doors. you always learn something when you talk to voters. i think there should be more of that. guest: you are agreeing with me. host: let's hear from an independent caller, shirley. caller: it is nice to talk with you. i watch cnn and fox. one thing none have reported -- i got it on the internet. i am 80 years old. i was born during the wpa. i know -- i think our money has been spent foolishly in the white house. they have put a clamp on a story that came now. remember when mr. obama said stay out of mexico on spring break? his daughter took a dozen friends and 25 secret servicemen to mexico. t
up and down. [laughter] >> why do you think that the jewish electorate has changed at all in recent times during the obama administration? do you think that the support among non-jews has changed in any way for their support of israel? >> with respect to the obama us support of the jewish community? i think it went down to a low ultimately after the election. it rose over 60% now. with respect to the american people, it's very interesting. democrats, at one point, not too long ago, only 48% of democrats were supportive of israel. 85% of republicans were supportive. >> it has gone up, democrats. >> you are saying that support among republicans is higher? >> it has always been higher. we are talking among the -- >> among the general population. the percentage is higher among republicans. that is a nice lead in for you. >> i see a lot of forces at play right now. the leadership of the democratic party is taking a harder tone. a pro-palestinian platform, among other things. there is a moderate democratic vote and there are liberals and who need a place to go. you know, the republicans r
that if obama is reelected, that ruth bader ginsburg will step down and are there any other justices that you think might consider withdrawing from the supreme court? >> the answer is resignations are very political. in the sense that justices decide to leave when a president to their liking is in a position to appoint them. rick ginsburg is a great fan of president obama, and i do think that she will leave probably in obama's third year. she is 79 years old. she often says she wants to serve until she is 82 years old. that is one her idol served until. you know, she's a human being. she is a widow. she loves what she does and she's got it and she has the brains and the health to do it. she is particularly enamored of her new colleague, elena kagan, and her choice is to be the singer liberal on the supreme court,. >> so i think that she is going to be okay. [laughter] if obama is reelected and it is looking that way, i was not pandering, but i was making another one of our excellent productions. i don't think any of the conservatives will leave voluntarily. that is starting to be a pretty old
you think that if obama is reelected that ruth bader ginsburg will step down? and are there any other justices that you think might consider withdrawing from the supreme court? >> the answer is, resignation decisions are very political in the sense that justice is decide to leave when a president to their liking is in a position to appoint them. ruth ginsburg is a great fan of president obama, and i do think she will leave probably in obama's third year. she is 79. she is often said she wants to search use 82 because that's when louis brandeis, her idol, served until. not funny, that's true. and some people ask why didn't she quit earlier to make sure that obama bashing she's a human being. and she's a widow. and she loves what she does and she's good at it. she's got the brains and the health did it. she's particularly and members of for new college, elena kagan. and her choice is to be the senior liberal on the supreme court, or go sit by herself in her apartment near watergate. what would you do? [laughter] so i think she's going to stay. now, if obama is reelected, and it's lookin
policy. never bothered to sit down and lay out a comprehensive and coherent foreign policy vision. what he's done, the krilts sism of obama he reacts to event bs, what romney does is react to obama's reaction to events. whatever obama's posture is he tries to maneuver into a position to say obama is weak, obama is jimmy carter about because when you're the republican it's 1979 the democratic president is always jimmy carter. the perfect example how he handled libya. when the libya thing started a year and a half ago, the first response from mitt romney, when obama agreed to the mission, the first response from mitt romney was, too late, and this isn't enough. he criticized him. weaknessp. he wouldn't address it. ducking reporters. then he starts warning couple months later, this mission, this is too broad. now mission creep. we're losing sight of what we need to be doing. he even starts suggesting do we even know if it's a good idea to be taking gadhafi out. then gadhafi is out. gadhafi's gone. then romney says you know what, the world celebrates the ouster. he's just constantly changin

on it. president obama and the first lady sat down with the ladies of "the view." the president was quick to shoot the idea of michelle obama running for president one day. >> she should run for office but she said she doesn't want to. >> yeah, i -- i -- look -- i mean, michelle would be terrific but temperamentally i don't think -- >> wait, no, it's absolutely true. it takes a lot of patience to be the president of the united states. and i'm not that patient. >> the first lady went on to say her husband was the perfect temperament to be president. no emotional shifts, very steady. she says she's one of the only people who can really make him mad. >> i'd be in such big trouble. i'm not sure he can get away with that. >> he just did. >> she agreed with him. >> i do not know what happened in the limo on the way home. that's a private moment. >>> the replacement refs, another controversy. russell wilson throws a hail mary pass. it appears to be intercepted by green bay safety m.d. jennings. the replacement officials call it a touchdown. seahawks win, 14-12. >> i want to go back to
cable news outlet, what is more interesting a barack obama speech about trade policy or a guy tearing down the freeway in a stolen car. i think this is not the last we've seen of this. obviously this is a symptom of the culture that feeds itself and this will be happening again, but it is really tragic. i thought shep smith handled it as well as anybody could since presumably he was not making the call on content. >> fox news said in a statement later that this was severe human error, because. >> as opposed to cheering on the iraq war relentlessly. >> exactly. when he was saying get off it get off it, he is shifting his attention between what he is saying and live feed from the studio and t.v. feed, which is on the delay. as he's watching the delayed thin, he knows what's coming so he is shouting to his producers get off of it. >> he knew seven seconds earlier. >> he shouted get off it and nobody does. >> a lot of our liberal friends god bless are using this to slam fox news. i give shep a pass on this one. clearly he wasn't calling the shots on what they should be covering and if you
